Local 323 Dental Program - 2019 Rates and Benefits!

This Dental Program is sponsored by Mail Handlers Local 323 for our Regular Membership as well as any Postal or Federal employees who choose to affiliate as an Associate Member.  This program utilizes the HealthPartners Regional Dental network to provide coverage throughout the plan area.  Please review the Plan Brochure for instructions on determining specific provider locations using the HealthPartners website.  The plan has an effective coverage date of January 1, 2019 and any new enrollments or changes need to be received by the Local 323 office by December 17, 2018.

 

Mail Handlers and MHAs must be Regular Members in order to be eligible for this plan.  Postal and Federal employees are required to pay an annual Associate Membership fee of $42.00 to the Local Mail Handlers Union; however, if you are currently an Associate Member through the Mail Handlers Benefit Plan, no additional fee is required. The Associate Membership fee, if applicable, will be billed within 30 days of the effective date of coverage.  This fee only applies to the Postal or Federal employee.  Spouses and dependents covered by the employee are not required to pay an additional fee.

 

Please take the time to review the materials and you will find this plan to be of outstanding value.  Questions regarding the plan should be directed to HealthPartners at (952) 883-5000.  Questions regarding enrollment or Associate Membership should be directed to the Local Mail Handlers Union at (651) 646-2827 or LocalOffice@Local323.org.  To enroll, please mail the Dental Enrollment Forms to 1602 Selby Ave., Suite 5 St. Paul, MN 55104.

 

HealthPartners offers the option of direct bill or automatic withdrawal from your checking account each month.  If you select the direct bill option on the Enrollment Instruction sheet, skip the Authorization section, but be sure to sign and date the form.  If you want the convenience of automatic withdrawal from your account on the fifth banking day each month, complete the authorization section on the enrollment instructions form and send a voided check or deposit slip along with the completed form.  There is no charge for the automatic withdrawal service.

 

To participate in this Dental Plan, you must be under age 65, a Federal or Postal employee and agree to remain in the plan for twelve months.  Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to serve you.

 

This plan is not part of the Federal Employees’ Health Benefit Program and provides dental coverage only.  You must still select a health plan for medical coverage.  You are not required to select HealthPartners or the Mail Handler Benefit Plan in order to be eligible for enrollment.
